Why a School Crisis Plan May be Necessary
A crisis plan is an action plan that is used when a student is at risk of harming themselves or others. These plans are developed by the student’s IEP team. If the student does not have an IEP, a school team knowledgeable about the student can also develop a plan. These plans put in place policies and procedures for a student experiencing a crisis and should be reviewed regularly by the school team. If your child experiences behavior or mental health challenges, you may want to talk to your school about creating a Crisis plan for your child.
